My four siblings and I used FairSplit to divide up our mother’s estate. We created several categories and held multiple rounds over 6+ months to distribute 1000+ items/groups of items among ourselves and identify remaining items for donation. We live far apart, each of us has strong emotional and other attachments to many of our mother’s possessions, and as a family we’re good at procrastinating and terrible at making difficult decisions. The division of our mother’s estate could have been extremely contentious, divisive and protracted. It did remain inherently painful for most of us, but we had a great experience with FairSplit. The rounds went smoothly with great technical support and provided a fair, transparent process we could all trust. This was invaluable in our situation, and it’s hard to imagine how we could have done the division without FairSplit. In fact, FairSplit allowed us to make something good out of the situation. Our mother loved auctions, so we actually feel we were doing something she herself would have appreciated and enjoyed and that respected and honored her legacy. I highly recommend FairSplit and am so grateful we were able to take advantage of this incredible resource.
FairSplit was the perfect tool when my two sisters and I had to divide up furniture, family heirlooms, art work, and all kinds of other household things, when my parents moved to a much smaller apartment. We decided to actually allocate everything at this one time, ignoring whether my parents would take it with them or not, so we didn’t have to do this painful process again. Although we had different ideas of how this should be done, several things were invaluable. One – we live far apart and we could do this together online. Two – the system assigned things randomly, so we all got things we wanted and we all saw things we wanted assigned to a different sister. Because it was impersonal, it felt fair. Three – because we were doing this online, there was no pressure to do this within a time frame of a few days visit at my parents. We did several rounds of choosing over a month.
When we had technical difficulties, the staff at FairSplit were quickly responsive and explained what to do, or fixed a bug immediately.
I highly recommend this for use in dividing estates, downsizing, etc. Thank you FairSplit.
It was a good deal for her (sister), but it was a great deal for me because I didn’t have to negotiate face to face with someone who causes me so much emotional trauma. It was a blind, fair split.
I have been wanting to thank you for almost a year now, for creating FairSplit. I don’t know how us four siblings could have done the split of our parent’s vast amount of stuff without it. We all live in different places and aren’t necessarily the best at getting along. Getting everything done through your program was huge. And then we got together for one weekend and cranked through the rest of the small stuff. Thank you so so much!!
Your FairSplit system was remarkable. It allowed me to clean-out my home which had sold over a weekend and needed to be emptied in a month. With the assistance of the FairSplit team and the flexibility of their system, I was able to distribute about 280 pieces of furniture and possessions to 14 relatives in 20 days! And, as important, I could randomize the process keeping me out of the selection process. FairSplit saved the day. Thank you.
